at that, look at mississippi congressman steve palaso. he pushed for storm relief in his area after hurricane katrina and isaac. he voted no for sandy relief because quote, we have a financial disaster looming in the country that i believe personally in my heart is going to be greater than any natural disaster that has ever hit us. now, today the paper ripped into palazzo. his hometown paper. for his vote against sandy relief. quote, seldom has a single vote in congress appeared as cold-blooded and hard headed as the one cast by representative steven palazzo last week. that he would rather make a philosophical point rather than help put back together communities. as he himself once put it is both shameful and offensive. this is an example of this kind of tea party ideology that just seems that people are not as important as the ideology even when they didn't feel that way under different circumstances, jackie. >> again, like we talked about the divide in the republican party, we saw a lot of east coast -- the republicans whose districts were effected by that really get very upset ab

on the mississippi river has been reduced and may stop in areas where drought has left water levels too low for safe passage. the american waterways operators and the waterways council estimate that $7 billion worth of commodities are supposed to ship on the mississippi in december and january alone. so an interruption would be a considerable economic effect. the u.s. army corps of engineers has been a $10 million project to prevent the shutdown. the other option would be to release water from the missouri river, but that would just be drawing down water supplies in up-river states that are already suffering from drought themselves, like montana and nebraska and north dakota. water is also essential for power generation. according to the united states geological survey, power plants account for nearly half of the daily water withdrawn in the u.s. drought and heat go hand in hand to push power plant towards shutdown. a 2008 drought put several power plants in the southeast within days or weeks of shutting down. texas, california, and the midwest now face a similar challenge with drought, stressing th
